Works with ascii output from grd2xyz. And it finds max and min with binary input, but just prints a blink line with -El option and binary input. Maybe the binary input line didn't get convert to ASCII. Using binary i/o is a big improvement with my global/15c grids, so I noticed this.


$ grd2xyz -s e045n30.grd | gmtinfo -El2
56.375 25.9291666667 -162

$ grd2xyz -s e045n30.grd -bo3f | gmtinfo -bi3f
<Standard Input>: N = 9655093 <45/60> <15/30> ←162/4418>

$ grd2xyz -s e045n30.grd -bo3f | gmtinfo -bi3f -El1

The reporting of that special record was all assuming ascii input. Should be fixed in r13427. Please post back to let me know so I can close the issue.
